Chevron, the US-based energy company and the operator of the giant Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG projects in Australia, reported a rise in profit during the first quarter of 2018. 

According to the company’s report, the earnings in the quarter under review stood at $3.6 billion, compared to the $2.7 billion reported in the corresponding quarter in 2017.
